proposals to senator harry reid. the house has submitted proposals and paul ryan passed a budget. but senator harry reid, he won't consider it. and he won't encourage his senate budget committee to do anything. absolutely nothing. it's a pocket veto and stops the budget from going forward. >> in fairness to pall and all john boehner, every year the republicans have been in the majority in the house in this administration, the house has passed a budget -- both times. the senate -- the majority leader won't even bring it up. and the republicans bring up obama's budget to -- as an amendment to force the democrats' hand. but if the president leads, i happen to believe the president must be telling the democrat leader, don't do it. if the president starts telling him now, we are going to try to really get something done, i assume the democratic leader will do what the president says. >> caller: i am not here to defend why the president didn't do t. all of these budgets twould have been so simple. he's the leader of the party. if the holdup is harry reid, a democrat, couldn't he just c

this morning from paul ryan. he tells our john karl about the shock of last tuesday night and whether president obama now has a mandate to govern in his second term. some interesting comments from the former veep candidate. >> whether or not he is considering 2016. >>> we mentioned the guy the voice of elmo yesterday in ""the skinny,"" well, a distinctly adult story involving a children's character with new developments. stay with us for that. >>> we begin with the first pictures of paula broadwell since it was revealed she did have an affair with david petraeus. broadwell, as you can see here, was seen at her brother's house in washington right there in the window eating and having a little bit of wine. >> we're learning much more about the other woman also at the center of the scandal. we are talking about jill kelley. abc's martha raddatz reports. >> reporter: it is breathtaking. within days, two four-star generals so widely respected in the midst of scandal. first, david petraeus, and now general john allen being investigated for sending what the pentagon said were potentially inappropriate

that. p. >> the real winner will be paul ryan no matter what the outcome, explain that. >> i definitely think that paul ryan is the winner no matter what the outcome. if obama and biden are successful, paul ryan is essentially just beginning his career. he's fast tracked many individuals who were older and more experienced. and for many republicans it's about 2016. and before this election cycle, republican names are chris christie, jeb bush, marco rubio. and now that paul ryan is on the seat, his name has to be included in that lens for 20167. i think the better you come is that romney and ryan don't win and ryan can just focus the next four years on either running for governor, running for senate seat, but really thinking about 2016 as a viable option for himself. >> and what will give you the first indication that maybe romney can pull this off? >> if ohio comes together for him, that would definitely be a huge indicator. the northeast is not really going to be a romney sweep by any stretch. it will be a nail biter. i think we will go quite late this evening. but ohio and maybe penns

the beginning, andrew. check the tape. >> we will have to check the tape. but no, paul ryan was the way in which he persuaded the republican base that he's one of them. i mean he had the republican base. he did not lose this election because he wasn't conservative enough. he lost the moderates in the middle in places like ohio, in places like florida where he just couldn't afford to. and i think it's a triumph of an actual campaign against pure cynicism and lies. and i think that is a huge victory for the american people, i really do.

( crowd cheering ) you know, in addition to the presidential race, tonight the leadership of congress could change hands. or in the case of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, amphibious flippers. they only need to pick up four seats and they'll seize control. with that in mind, let's take a look at some of the
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor

to this question of the fiscal consolidation? some said that paul ryan is saying we are going to leave medicare the way it is -- >> that is more interesting than the specific transfer, because i'm not a sure that the transfer is ultimately sustainable. it makes the math work -- >> more sustainable today than -- [laughter] >> there is certainly far more interested in the broader question of the debt burden. i think it is question that all economists are worried about, this debt-to-gdp ratio and. in the generational context as well. at the people are much more aware after years of a trillion dollar deficits than they were four or five years ago -- >> it is not the generational issue, because young people voted overwhelmingly for -- >> you are basically saying, are we saying to them, you are going to have to bear the burden of all the consolidation and we are going to exempt ourselves from it, because in the right version, for example, nothing really happens for 10 years. we put more money back in for seniors. generationally, does that work? >> there is the time value of money, and if you start a
for the country, those would be good signs. >> what was your immediate thinking about paul ryan and where did you end up thinking? >> my immediate was i cannot believe they're going to do this. just -- i -- axelrod always thought it was going to be paul ryan. >> he did not. he thought it was going to be tim pawlenty. >> ax looked at me and said they are going to pick paul ryan. at the time i thought to myself, they're going to spend a lot of time on defense on medicare, medicaid, all whole bunch of issues. >> they were not divisive issues. >> did you see how close florida was? i think they spent some time defending it. important. we aired several ads. i thought he added some youth and energy. they had a base concerns and he helped those. so i am not criticizing the pick i just think there were other -- >> you are. >> i was giving an assessment of the good and bad. >> was the helpful? he gave them excitement. he bought them silence from conservatives. did that help or hurt mitt romney? >> i do not think it did much of be there. here is the truth. we carried his home town. vice-presidential picks u
of scott walker and paul ryan, that could be a big surprise. i'm hugely interested in pennsylvania. that was not on the romney map initially. what's happened is after the debates, pennsylvania shot up. he's drawing gigantic crowds there, and that could be a big surprise. then one little one. it's only six votes, if i'm not mistaken, but he's doing very well in iowa. he's polling very well in iowa. i'm not a polling expert, lord knows, but i'll say this. romney could lose ohio. he could lose pennsylvania. and he could still win the election. >> how? >> the south. >> colorado and wisconsin. colorado and wisconsin. >> you don't think wisconsin is a given, though, because of paul ryan? of course, it's not a given in massachusetts either, is it? >> i'll tell you this, i don't think anything is a given. you know why i say that? i think the voter i.d. turnouts that are determining these polls are highly flawed this year. you had 2008 which was an outlier. if you decide democrats plus seven or democrats plus five based on 2008, what about 2004? what about 2000? what about 2010, for example
mitt romney's political future remains uncertain. his running mate, paul ryan returns to his old job in congress. >> with this level of the president did a very, very effective campaign. second i think the country was looking at a different set of things and we were looking at. >> we are going to hear a lot about what it is not the republicans that are celebrating into michael yaki will be here to analyze the results. >>pam: new tonight an attempted kidnapping of a 42 year-old girl in broad daylight in east oakland this happened on tuesday as the child was walking to her neighborhood on the international boulevard near 103rd. they tried to grab her from behind around 4:30 >> they tried to draw occurred toward the vehicle they believe that she was going to be put inside of that car. she was able to break free from this stranger. she told her parents what happened and the first suspect we are looking at, the abductor. is male, caucasian, 140-150, white t-shirt, black pants. and he had brown work shoes. the second suspect is also a male caucasian. in his mid- 20s, late 20s with short, b
-along with that. there are some republicans you are. you are never going to get michelle bachmann paul ryan god bless america. for all of the other ones moderate republicans and those are like, wait a second. i am going to be in a tough primary fight. in the mid-term election, going to be in the mid-term fight against a democratic candidate. they are going to have to come to the middle. i think there is also, new republicans republicans, you know, in the united states congress like the bob corker's of this world, pat tumis whom say let's get something done because if we don't, it will be unpopular and we will get nothing done. >> the question is whether john boehner is going to be able to get that vote of the tea party members of the house. so far, what i find disgusting, if the republicans could have made this deal six months ago because they were so cocky. they figured they were going to knock obama out, it was going to be a different world. right? so they went home and said we will wait for the election. and let the people decide. we will be in charge afte
. the president won by six points in iowa. he beat romney by seven in wisconsin. native son paul ryan did not ultimately make ryan really that much more competitive there and then the president won out west narrowly winning in colorado and, of course, he won by what we expected, a fairly wide margin in the state of nevada. he beat romney by five points in new hampshire, the state romney's family spends his summers. late last night virginia was called in the president's favor. and more than hurricane sandy, the employment rate, or even the auto bailout what proved decisive was cold, hard demographics. as the obama campaign predicted more than a year ago the white portion of the electorate would drop and it dropped from 74% to 72% in 2012. the president may have won just 39% of white voters but he carried nearly eight in ten nonwhite voters including a whopping 93% of african-americans. 71% of had a tinos, and 73% of asian voters. and despite all the predictions young voters wouldn't turn out, they made up a higher percentage of the electorate than they did four years ago. that's right. a h
three, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, ohio, the state we have just been talking about and also nevada, big harry reid's home state, the senate leader, big union vote, big hispanic vote there. if he gets those three things, barack obama gets to 271 electoral votes and wins, tyler. >> but not any three of those nine states? >> specifically those three. >> specifically those three. say it again, ohio, nevada -- >> ohio, wisconsin, nevada. if barack obama gets those three, can win every other swing state -- >> do the polls tell us that he is ahead in those three? >> yes. >> they do? >> he is ahead in all three. in fact of the nine swing states, tyler, mitt romney has a clear lead only in the state of north carolina. he is even with president obama in florida and many strategists in both parties believe florida will go to mitt romney but he has got to get a lot more than that. >> john harwood, thank you very much. as john outlined it is very difficult for either candidate, frankly, to get to that magic 270 number without the state of ohio and here's video evidence from cleveland as
in florida, then it's on to virginia, ohio, finally, new hampshire. paul ryan heads to nevada, colorado, ohio and wisconsin. all right. take a look at this. yes, that is new jersey governor chris christie greeting homeland security chief as the pair toured a relief center in hoboken sunday. christie last sun said he didn't give a damn about the presidential election as he dealt with the disaster. on sunday he laughed at the notion that he wasn't still loyal to mitt romney. >> i don't understand why telling the president of the united states he's done a good job when he's done a good job equals an endorsement. fact of matter is, mitt romney knows this, by the way, so does the president of the united states. i endorsed mitt romney 13 months ago because i thought he was the best guy for the job. on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis and helping the people of new jersey and extend my hand of friend
of millions of dollars for him and worked harder i think than any other surrogate in america other than paul ryan. >>> hours after his re-election win, president obama dove right back into politics that loom over the fiscal cliff debate. he and his family returned to washington where the president called congressional leaders to talk about finding bipartisan solutions to reducing the debt, cut middle class taxes and create jobs. house speaker john boehner said under the right conditions republicans would consider new sources of raising revenue, but only if the president took an inclusive approach. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> senate majority leader harry reid said he was open to bargaining. >> we can achieve big things if we wor
that way. >> you played paul ryan during the vice-presidential debate. you know the paul ryan budget plan as well as paul ryan. you know it well. what can you say about the plan knowing you were critical of it you, proposed it? what do you see in that plan that could be the basis for middle ground between yourself and paul ryan moving forward? you will be part of these negotiations. is there anything in the plan that could be the seed for compromise? any area that you would be willing to negotiate with republicans attacked there is very little overlap between the democratic budget and the house republican budget. there are some areas of, for its --, and brown. we believe that there are savings to be made in terms of rolling back many of the excess of agricultural subsidies. that is part of his budget. to get rid of some of these direct payments. we should agree on those issues fairly quickly. there are some items. you raise an interesting point that i want to emphasize, which is the term, ground is use a lot. what we need here is not -- it would be great to find more common ground. compro
and and raged. not because it makes such a difference if you are paul ryan use say come on. it does not make much of the difference but the injustice is in reaching. also regulation. the tick related industries where it is based on obligatory framework what was the greatest rip-off of the american middle-class the regulatory failure leading up at 2,008. i don't the candidate is the perfect country there are many problems but when counterexample the show's the distilled regulate the bankers is canada they did not have a financial crisis just because regulators said no to the bank's. it was hard. talking to authorities finance ministers said we were so upset with the rest of the world i went to beijing and it tidies said your canadians are so conservative. i amatory and the communist chinese are telling me i am too soft? [laughter] but they held belied. i give them some much credit. average wealth for families is higher than the american family. to talk about the rip-off is failure of bank regulations. >> one more quick question? >> i am sorry. one of carlos say against books i assume they wor
of 43 years. >> she would have been a wonderful first lady. >> reporter: today, paul ryan who was elected to the house and will have a much bigger voice, released a statement. i am very proud of the campaign we ran and am grateful to romney for the honor of being his running mate. hours later as results poured in and excitement drained from the election night ballroom, aides cut to the giant screens, cueing the band to play. and today, one of mr. romney's top surrogates, new jersey governor chris christie spoke to his fellow republican. >> i was extraordinarily disappointed last night. i was surprised, you know, that it ended as quickly as it did. but it is the way it goes, people decide elections. >> reporter: another put it more succinctly, putting it this way, this one stinks. and as governor romney left his headquarters, he was there wrapping up a good-bye meeting with his staff. now wrapping up the headquarters for possibly the wrong time. >> peter, thank you, and lester holt is here with us in the studio after we all went through this long night with a look at how the ob

in "the wisconsin state journal." observers say paul ryan now a front-runner for the 2016 gop nomination. tell me we're not already talking about 2016. >> let the race begin. of course, we're keeping our eye on another big story as well this morning. can you probably see the flags moving pretty briskly behind us. that is a sign of what's to come as nasty weather, a nor'easter bears down on already storm-ravaged parts of this east coast. al is live along the new jersey shore with what we can expect. >> all right. we want to get right to our top story, the election results. nbc's kristen welker had a late night covering president obama's campaign, and she joins us this morning from chicago. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. well, president obama is waking up as a two-term president. a lot of people said it wouldn't be possible because of the stagnant economy, but he was able to rally his core constituents, women, african-americans, young voters works turned out in force to send him back to the white house. a triumphant president obama walked out to a
center in cleveland later on this morning. this afternoon, another in pittsburgh. paul ryan will be in richmond and also join the governor in cleveland. the governor was sitting around in the tarmac yesterday, according to an advisor saying, i don't want to sit in a hotel room all day on election day. let's go out and do what we can to muster every last vote. when you look at the early voting, it's advantage obama right now. governor romney really has to rack up the count on his side of things. yesterday in columbus urging his supporters at a rally to get out there and get everyone they can get to the polls. here he is. >> some of you have been successful in convincing your neighbors to vote for paul ryan and me and i thank you for that. now let's make sure that everyone we know gets out to vote on times you're here because you care about america. this campaign is about america and about the future that we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask to you stay at it all the way until victory on tuesday night is clear. >> for governor romney today will be all
going to win. we heard mitt romney did and ann romney did. >> paul ryan. >> paul ryan did. did you believe on election day you were going to win? >> i thought between the end of the debates, the debate season and the onset of the storm, we had tremendous momentum. >> yeah. >> we saw it in our internal data, saw it in some of the external data, the public data and saw it on the ground. we would go to rallies, people standing in lines, thousand for hours. >> what happened? why was your internal data so flawed? why was it so wrong? >> i think a couple things. one, there is a -- some kind of systemic crisis today in the world of polling, i think on the right of center polling. the modeling was way off. how pollsters on the republican side -- although not just the republican side. gallup polling, rasmussen made similar mistakes. the understanding, the electorate looked like was way off. >> first of all, you know rasmussen is a republican poll. >> gallup? i'm not letting anyone off the hook. i'm saying there is -- look the republican establishment needs to do an audit and figure out how
is also going to get together with his former running mate, congressman paul ryan at some point today. ryan recently returned to work on capitol hill, but the republican ticket reunion is going to happen somewhere away from the hill, we're told. back to you. >> steve: peter, we thank you very much. >> gretchen: why would mitt romney do this lunch? >> steve: it's the classy thing to do. >> gretchen: maybe. >> brian: it dates back to 1960. jfk we want to visit richard nixon. >> gretchen: i'm all for class, but i don't know what the benefit is of doing this lunch because -- >> steve: you don't want to look like a sore loser. >> gretchen: i don't know. let us know what you think about that. should mitt romney go to this lunch today? i have a couple reservations about it. >> brian: during the holidays with traffic. >> gretchen: not about that. he's not going to go back into politics. is the president really going to listen to mitt romney's ideas? i mean, he's not on the same page at all. so i don't really understand the benefit of this other than the president being able to come out and sa
speech just after midnight. romney said he and paul ryan gave everything they had to the campaign. >> i so wish i had been able to fulfill the hopes to lead the country in a different direction. so ann and i ask to you pray for the -- ask you to pray for the nation. >>> 7:03. governor jerry brown is claiming an historic victory for the first time in eight years. california voters have approved a state-wide tax hike. californians passed proposition 30. ktvu's tara moriarty is in san francisco one of the biggest backers of the measure. >> reporter: it's no secret that public schools in san francisco are struggling. so for that reason, many parents decided to put their kids in private schools. also, voters in alameda and santa cruz county had support as well. but mo-dot county did not support this proposition. this is mission high school. in san francisco, it's it's the oldest -- it's the oldest high school. governor jerry brown spoke to supporters at the sheridan hotel before 11:30. he said nowhere else in the country would people vote for an education tax. >> here we are, we have a vote
when authorities intervened -- interfeen -- intervened. >>> paul ryan says he's proud of the republican campaign that he and mitt romney ran despite their election loss. >> i think we lost because the president did a better job of getting his voters to the polls. he did a better job of turnout, which is important if you want to win the election. >> paul ryan says he and mitt romney were stunned by the election results and says losing never feels good. >>> president obama may be asking senator john kerry to be his next secretary of defense. now, there are reports that john considerry would prefer to be secretary of state butfullies say that job will almost certainly be offered to susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. >>> and now there are some voters in about two dozen states who say they want to su seed from the united states -- secede from the united states. >>> weigh want to check in with sal. how -- we want to check in with sal. how are things looking there? >> we're seeing building traffic on 101. it's not really as bad as it has been. i've been checking off the lis
